    Using windows, right click on the desktop background and select properties. Click on the settings tab and there's your options.:D

    Sorry i didn't make my OP more clear, I was on about an additional piece of software that allows you to amend the screen res to 720 and not 768.

    Anyone??

    I would expect 1280x720 to be a standard resolution on any modern graphics card.

    What James said is correct about using the settings under the properties menu from the desktop. You might have to dig around a bit under there. e.g. is there an advanced button? If I click that on my PC it brings up further Nvidia menu options & under adapter there's a List all Modes buttons which has hundreds of resolution options including 1280x720.

    If you can't set it direct from windows then the software you need is powerstrip.
